These nests of bowls are very special. It took me five years to learn how to make them and I have to forge all my own curved hook tools to cut one bowl inside the other, most of the time I am working blind by feel. They are collectors pieces but also designed for use, they will get nicer with regular use. I don’t make many of these and starting with the launch of my new website I am numbering and recording each set. No VIII is a lovely deep set of nested bowls in sycamore. 15.5″ by 6.5″. These scorched bowls are a joy to use, they have a lovely silky feel and age beautifully.
There is a video showing the process and the history on the “Craft” page.
